That Lou Reed album Berlin is something fierce. Some great, depressive stuff.

Mark Olson - Salvation Blues in tribute to him giving Kanye West a good sound kicking in Norway.

I love listening to an album that sounds like an old friend.

Well, I finally got this Levon Helm 'Dirt Farmer' [along with the Stephen Stills 'Just Roll Tape' I kept forgetting to pick up]. Immediately it reminded me of an 'old friend' too: Some of these older small towns here in Minnesota that exist largely due to farming, with no other 'industry' propping them up.

Levon's music is timeless--some of these songs go back to his childhood in Arkansas, and the whole thing has an old-tyme feeling, like it could have been recorded 50 years ago, in one of these towns.
The warm mix immediately hit me such as that you can get at Oak Center, Minnesota, in the General Store where the wood is old and full of the folk and bluegrass and such that's been absorbed by it for nearly 40 years.
I know, babbling again... But this Levon thing is wonderful, warm; in the most wonderful of ways it's a hammock ride wrapped in CD form.

Here's a picture of this magical place out in the country, (rare, that). It almost looks this cartoon-ish.
As I type there's a bluegrass/jamgrass session tuning up for tonight by a guy names Chris Silver, with his band, some of whom are in an outfit known as Tangled Roots. My traveling partner can't make it this time, but it's a place to go if you're ever in Southern Minnesota on a Friday or Saturday evening (October thru March, the summer finds these folks farming the organic way and living off farmer's markets and such). The music is warm and always better than the 'popularity' of the artists playing. Better because the place struggles to make enough money to pay the singers or bands who make the trek there, but the richest of the 'lesser-knowns' alway seem to come through there, and its far enough away from the cities and nightclubs, that you truly feel like you're somewhere else in time. It's like a Prairie Home Companion kind of place, without a real 'town'. I should be there tonight, really I should, been working enough lately.

sorry for all the digressions... Just lost in some reverie brought on by this Levon Helm disc...

Geesh, perhaps this belongs in the 'despair' thread...
I found this in a thrift store the other day on LP. For some reason, it's release on CD was very limited. Maybe the bad guys bought out the pressing...

I LOVE Gene Clark, but I'd like to show some love for the song written by Mr. Plum, Mr. Paigey, their band's drummer Michael Lee, and Charlie Jones, "Please read the letter". Folkin adorable stuff!

Listening to the new Public Enemy album...holy crap! Never mind Bruce, Fogerty or Neil Young... this is the comeback of the year! It's easily their best album since Apocalypse 91... I've only had it a week and its straight into my top albums of the year. Bring the noise!!!

It's been a while but like an old, returning friend Rainy Day Music is welcoming and still sparkling.
